Reserved parking signs for veterans are starting to pop up in Tennessee. One of our teammates spotted this sign (above) at the Opry Mills parking lot, near the entrance at Chuy’s and H&M. In another Tennessee city, the Knoxville mayor announced distribution of designated parking signs for Purple Heart recipients. Churches, restaurants, and living centers are just a few more places that are participating in this thoughtful trend.
While there is no way to ever repay our military men and women, this small gesture is a unique way for organizations to say “thank you” to those who sacrifice for us. Nissan is proud to support our veterans as the official automotive partner of the Wounded Warrior Project, where Newton Nissan serves as a Base Camp Sponsor. Additionally, the Nissan Military Program exists to give maximum savings on a new Nissan to our active, reserve, and retired veterans.
There’s only one van built to carry superheroes, and that’s the 2016 Nissan NV 2500 Cargo Van. In one of the most talked about movies this summer, Captain America: Civil War, Ant Man shows up in the back of a cargo van, fast asleep. He’s then abruptly awoken by the Avengers, where he gets to meet his biggest hero, Captain America.
This is not the first time that Nissan has joined forces with superheroes. Robert Downey Jr. has voiced several Nissan commercials, including the heart-warming polar bear commercial featuring the Nissan LEAF. Iron Man didn’t fight any villains in the commercial, but you could say he helped save the planet.
Searching for the right vehicle can be a tedious process. Finding the best fit for your situation takes time that most us do not have, and making sure you pick the car with the right features is important. So, here is something to cut down the hassle a bit.
The 2016 Nissan Altima is an option that should very much be considered. It has always been, and continues to be, one of Nissan’s top-selling vehicles. Here are 5 reasons why: responsive ride, attractive looks, fancy features, safe technology, and excellent efficiency. To hear more detail on each of these reasons, watch the video above!
For the first time in its car giveaway history, The Newton Nissan family of dealerships is selecting two winners this year, instead of one. Newton Nissan has given away a brand new 2016 Nissan Versa to one lucky student in the Nashville area since 2009. Our auto family decided to give away two cars this year since we now have two dealerships in the community.
Students who wish to enter the contest will need to bring in their original report card to Newton Nissan at 1461 Nashville Pike, Gallatin, TN, by May 31st. For each “A” on their report card, students will receive an entry into this year’s drawing. The contest is open to all students, grades 9-12, enrolled in a Middle Tennessee high school during the 2015-2016 school year.
The winners will be selected at the dealership’s A’s Party on June 3rd, at 6 PM. The party, hosted by Lunchbox and Ray from the Bobby Bones Show, is an end-of-school year celebration with food and games for students and their families.
Luke Jacobs, Joshua Graves, Mia Tonyick, Mollie Hewitt, Julia Brown, and Paige Alcorn are all past winners of the Nissan Versa from Newton Nissan in Gallatin. To be a part of this group, be sure to come down to Newton Nissan with your report card. You could be our next winner!
